Farringdon Station, Minor Works and Utility Diversions, Hayne Street (Crossrail XSF10)

2019

Abstract

Combined general and targeted watching briefs were carried out at the site of Crossrail Farringdon Eastern ticket Hall by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA). Natural gravels were not exposed at Formation level (15.10m OD) . Disarticulated human remains (probably associated with the medieval burial ground in Charterhouse Square) were recovered within a later levelling deposit dated1480-1600. Suggesting that the burial ground may have extended further west then expsected. A series of post medieval dumps and a pit, as well as garden soil horizons are consistent with the low levels of human activiyty in the area after the formation of Charterhouse square gardens in the 16th century.
